RTV Covers Vatican Sex Abuse Summit in Rome
Remnant TV was in Rome this past week covering the Vatican’s clerical sexual abuse summit on the “protection of minors”. It seemed a dismal assignment, to be sure, but the reason it was necessary for The Remnant to be in the Eternal City was so we could throw in with our traditional Catholic allies in Rome who’d organized an act of formal resistance to the Vatican sham summit.
Going in, we all knew that the ultimate goal of the summit was to establish child abuse—not rampant homosexuality in the priesthood—as the main cause of a crisis in the Catholic Church which now rivals that of the Protestant Revolt. (Remnant TV coverage of this event as well as the Vatican summit itself, can be found on The Remnant’s YouTube channel, and for your convenience is laid out below:View items...
"He continued: “It was about trying to open up broader horizons, rising above conspiracy theories and blinkered viewpoints, so as to defend and spread the freedom of the children of God, and to transmit the beauty of Christian Newness, at times encrusted in a language which is archaic or simply incomprehensible.”
"Under the lightweight leftism of Pope Francis, the question “Is the Pope Catholic?” seems less and less rhetorical. Previous popes, reading the remarks above, would conclude that the speaker held to the theology of liberal Protestantism." READ ARTICLE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: You know what? Having just returned from Rome, and knowing from on-the-ground experience how spot-on correct Mr. Neumayr is, our comment this morning is lifted right from a subsequent paragraph in this same article:
"All the tortured throat-clearing from pundits about the “nuances” of Pope Francis is very unconvincing. He is not nuanced at all. He is an open left-wing Catholic, perfectly comfortable with the de facto heretics within his own order and inside his special cabinet of cardinals. Cardinal Walter Kasper, whom Pope Francis has identified as one of his “favorite” theologians, and Cardinal Reinhard Marx of Germany, who is one of his closest advisers, stand to the left of Martin Luther.
"Well, say the pope’s desperate propagandists, Francis may not possess a deep mind but at least he has a big heart. If so, it seems to bleed for everyone but orthodox Catholics, whose fidelity to the faith under secularism’s ceaseless encroachments is treated with contempt.
"Like many modern Jesuits, Francis often sounds like he loves every religion except his own."
Right on, Mr. Neumayr! If and when you begin to lose venues in which to publish the unvarnished truth as you've done so expertly here, please consider the columns of The Remnant wide open to you.
“And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had borne the male child. But the woman was given two wings of the great eagle that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times and half a time. * * * Then the dragon was angry with the woman, and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and bear testimony to Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea.” - Apocalypse of St. John, Chapter 12, verse 13-17.
Despite the fact that it is already mid-October, Rome is heating up. In the midst of the so-called Synod on the Family, scandal after scandal continue to rend the Rock. And, through the cracks the ugly core of heretical hierarchical real politik becomes ever more apparent to the faithful.
When you were a kid, and went to the pool, did you play the “how low can you go” game? Using keys or any object that would sink to the bottom, you stood at one end of the pool and threw it as far as you could into the deep end, then swam down after it. The game was really about nerve. Most pools are only about 10 feet at the diving end, and the lifeguard was always watching, so our daredevil diving was harmless.
But I get the impression that no matter how far down any bishop goes in the current synodal version of the game, there’s going to be someone ready to follow him a few feet lower. And the lifeguard on duty doesn’t seem to care one way or another. This rivalry among the Synod’s ultra-progressives (“heretics,” in Catholic) to see how outrageous they can get, right in front of the pope, seems to be bringing us to new depths that perhaps most ordinary Mass-going novusordoist Catholics had previously never guessed existed among the episcopate.
Blasphemy, Heresy, Schism and the “Collapse” of the Church (but, hey, at least the bishops will get to vote) FeaturedWritten by Hilary White
"This is the nightmare of conservative Catholic cardinals, including – unsurprisingly – those in the Vatican. They thought they had a sufficient majority in the synod to stop the lifting of the ban on divorced and remarried Catholics receiving communion, or any softening on the Church’s attitude to gay couples.
"But in yesterday’s keynote speech, delivered as the synod enters its last week, Francis told them that the decentralisation will be imposed from above.
"While deliberately referring to himself as ‘Bishop of Rome’, to underline his solidarity with local bishops everywhere (as opposed to the Roman Curia – i.e., ‘the Vatican’), he invoked the power of the Supreme Pontiff to overrule mere cardinals." READ FULL REPORT HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: A few questions for the International Una Voce Federation, the Fraternity of St. Peter, the Institute of Christ the King, the Society of St. Pius X, etc., etc.: What exactly are we waiting for? Many conservatives and even neo-Catholics are doing a better job exposing the obvious coup d’état going on right now inside the Vatican while we traditional Catholics are observing a solemn silence and, for the most part, sitting on our hands? I don't get it.
This is it. They're taking over our Church. They’re invading our home. They’re raping our mother. Our lives as Catholics will never be the same after this. Please God, who cares about canonical status and Latin Mass permission slips and appearing respectable and mainstream to apostates. Who cares! The ship is going down and we need to march on Rome, if not physically than in every other way including via the Internet and through prayer brigades.
The time for diplomacy has come and gone. Whether we like it or not, they've declared war on us and everything we hold sacred, including the faith handed down to us from our fathers. Let's march then.
This may well be our last chance, for once Rome completely capitulates on the moral issues we will no longer have recourse to the "conscientious objection" clause when the thought police come pounding on our doors in the middle of the night. We won't be able to appeal to our religious beliefs when it comes to accepting gay 'marriage" and cohabitation and all the rest. If we teach our kids the old faith and the old morality in the days to come, we will be branded as fundamentalists and haters who are unfit to raise our own children.
These modernist madmen in Rome are right now setting the table for the worst persecution of Catholics in history. And when that happens I wonder how concerned we’ll be that there was a time when people called us ‘rad trads’, accused us of being in ‘schism’ and lacking due canonical status. Again, WHO CARES!
The time to rise up and fight back is right now, and to do anything less will surely cause history to condemn us as aiders and abettors of those snakes and demons who did all in their power to destroy the holy Church of Jesus Christ the King.
May God help us all to do the right thing right now.
Chicago’s Windy City Prelate Blase Cupich divines that the conscience is inviolable and reigns supreme in all things theological.
In an interview with the National Catholic Register’s Edward Pentin, Archbishop Cupich, the personal appointment of Pope Francis to the Family Synod said when it comes to giving holy Communion to civilly remarried divorcees, people need to “come to a decision in good conscience” and that the Church’s job is to “help them move forward and to respect that.”
“In Chicago I visit regularly with people who feel marginalized: the elderly, the divorced and remarried, gay and lesbian individuals and also couples. I think that we really need to get to know what their life is like if we’re going to accompany them,” he said.
When asked to give a concrete example of how he would accompany the divorced and remarried in their desire to receive the sacraments, Cupich replied: “If people come to a decision in good conscience then our job is to help them move forward and to respect that. The conscience is inviolable and we have to respect that when they make decisions, and I’ve always done that.” READ FULL REPORT HERE

“Help us make people understand that we are not in schism. The Church is ours. It is our castle. It is our home. We will not leave her. We can never leave her.” ...Bishop Bernard Fellay
Menzingen is a place once visited not soon forgotten. Nestled high in the mountain pastures overlooking Zug, Switzerland, an unseen wall seems to have erected itself around this Catholic Brigadoon, shielding it from the soul-crushing “progress” of the modern world. The fact that it was originally built as a hunting lodge only adds to its mystique. One half expects to see a young Emperor Karl of Austria come cantering up into its tiny courtyard at any moment, a brace of hunting dogs at the heel.
Not much to the place, really—a modest chapel, a formidable statue of St. Pius X, a few outbuildings and the main lodge itself, which houses the offices and living quarters of the Superior General and his assistants. Defended by God’s own snow-capped battlements, it’s the perfect setting for the HQ of the single largest fraternity of traditional Catholic priests in the world.
